“I was down there also, but I’m not considering myself a first responder,” @realDonaldTrump tells people who rushed to help at the Twin Towers on #911. pic.twitter.com/HI2N7ffJOL— Jeff Mason (@jeffmason1) July 29, 2019
There wasn't a whole heck of a lot I had to say about Trump's messy, racist, Twittering weekend, which still wasn't apparently over as of this morning. I disagree with the opinion that this is strategy, though, based on things like the above comment Trump just made regarding what he was doing on 9/11--which is definitely contentious, let's stop pretending this is strategy. He's a narcissist.
He wants people to only say good things about him. He lashes out when people say bad things about him. He'll say good things about himself whether they are true or not. Rep. Cummings got Trump "in his feels" as the kids say these days because he's actually doing his congressionally-mandated job of oversight. Trump went on a Twitter-rampage to self-soothe. It just comes off as if Trump is trying to engineer a race war because 1) Trump watches a lot of Fox News and 2) is pretty racist, but let's not overthink it.
He could just be batshit.
